Iraq figures "bollocks": Medicins Sans Frontiers

Dr. Marie-Pierre Allié, President of the French section of Médecins Sans Frontières has admitted that the Lancet estimates of deaths in Iraq were fabricated.

Speaking about the recent Gaza conflict (second paragraph here), she said:

“MSF has been present for armed conflicts for nearly four decades. It is difficult to recall a comparable slaughter of civilians in so little time.”
Recall problems aside, civilian deaths in Operation Cast Lead over three weeks were approximately 300, or about 15 deaths per day.

However, according to the Lancet study, on average more than 500 people died in Iraq per day, following the US emancipation of the country. This means MSF, who were present in Iraq, have confirmed what we already knew - the Lancet study was bollocks.

Dr Allie could possibly be contacted for comment, but I'm not going to, because I'm pretty sure she's just some idiot.

They took long enough to do it! You could get elective surgery done on Medicare in NSW quicker than that.
